Person Group (in a citation)
Wrapper element for one or more authors, editors, translators, etc. named in a cited reference.
This element is used only in citations and similar elements and cannot be used to record the committee, working group, or other participation for a standards document.
The <person-group> element can be used to group all the contributors of a particular type (for example, authors, editors, directors, translators) that are named in a reference.
Usage: This element may also include any punctuation and spacing that is between the names, even when this element is used within an <element-citation>. Therefore, within the context of an element-only <element-citation>, care should be taken not to accidentally allow punctuation and spaces, since an XML parser will not view this as an error.

- Text, numbers, or special characters
- Contributor Naming Elements
- <aff> Affiliation
- <aff-alternatives> Affiliation Alternatives
- <etal> Et Al. (in a citation)
- <role> Role or Function Title of Contributor
